COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

On Nitro. Pours a very dark muddy brown bordering on black with a medium sized creamy beige head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of baking chocolate and freshly baked brownies. Taste of fresh baking chocolate with a touch of brownie to it. This was a nice treat.

Nitro tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Pitch black with a thick creamy brown head. Aroma is excellent, rich sweet and chocolatey with lots of excellent rich dark malts. Very sweet and chewy but deliciously chocolatey. A hint of cherry/berry notes underneath the rich chocolatey character. There is so much sweet chocolate and vanilla flavour in this beer. Desserty and delicious. Sweet milk chocolate palate with some lingering herbal bitterness on the back. Earthy, chocolatey and delicious. Less sweetness that the ST Choklat, but it’s in the same vein. Awesome brew.

Nitro @ Spuyten Duyvil. Poured a mostly black color with a creamy beige head. Tons of milk chocolate. Like Nestle Quick chocolate milk. It give ST Choklat a run for its money. The flavor had more of a bitter-sweet chocolate. The finish dries out with a mild-moderate bitterness. Creamy mouth feel with a light nitro body. I almost gave the aroma a 10.

Nitro pour at Spuyten. Looks good- takes a while to settle, long lasting frothy creamy grayish white head and great lacing. Aroma is sweet with toasted marshmellow, vanilla cream, sublte milk chocolates and a doughy yeast character- very pronounced despite the nitro factor. Flavo ris a bit more intense and loaded with vanilla bean, velvety ligth milk chocolates, almost essence of chocolate- some vanilla- buttery oakiness as well with some light charry roastiness in the middle, then subsides and becomes very smooth and almost slick in the end. Towards the end of the glass though, I was actually getting a little sick of the flavor and the body become a bit hard to take down- it wasnt thick at all, but it was a bit slick. This is a really good stout, but somehow I feel like I was expecing a bit more I guess.

Nitro tap at Spuyten. Fantastically mellow aroma, tons of vanilla and loose bitter chocolate, creamy, a little chalky. The mouthfeel is perhaps a bit loose and thin from the nitro, unfortunately, but clean vanilla notes made this an exceptionally smooth and rewarding drinking experience. I feel if this were not nitro though it could be truly world class.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2008 on tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Black in color with a small to medium creamy light brown head. Aroma: great which suprised me somewhat since it was poured off of nitro- a ton of chocolate, and moderate amount of roast. The chocolate has a fresh from the oven brownie character- extremely good. The taste is also excellent with all of that aforementioned chocolate as well as a nice roasty coffee- the body is very creamy and full with light touches of vanilla cream, a bit sweet but always kept in check and perfectly balanced by the roasted and chocolate malt. This finishes with alot of lingering dry chocolate, and a good deal of roasty bitterness. This was a phenomenal stout!

Draft at Spuyten. Black pour with thin tan head, nitro. Aroma is cocoa powder, but I always find it difficult to get much aroma from beers on nitro. Flavor is chocolate, some roasted matl, and much like amore aggressive young’s double chocolate. Smooth palate with a bitter finish.

On tap at Spuyten. Small head with a huge coffee aroma. Flavor is smooth like chocolate milk. A bit smoky and roasty. As good of a stout that’s out there.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 en fût au DDC. bière noire onctueuse avec une mousse épaisse, brune et durable, goût prononcé de café, finale trop amère à mon goût, ce qui rend le produit moins intéressant.
